Charles, with most wargamers in mind turns his attention to what can be achieved with smaller armies and in doing so, enlightens us about some of the absolutely fascinating and intriguing historical minor actions of the Seven Years War. So here we have Bamberg, Pirna, Olmutz and Basberg (both actions). This really is all the fun stuff: raids, assaults, attacks on convoys, brave or incompetent commanders with mixed forces and loads of irregulars, the sort of stuff that would make as good a film as a book. This is achievable wargaming at its best and firmly anchored upon the actual history.
